Six Nations LIVE: England beat Wales 12-3 thanks to two Jonny May tries to keep Grand Slam hopes alive

England and Wales collide at Twickenham on the second weekend of the Six Nations with both teams unbeaten and looking to challenge not only for the championship but also the Grand Slam.

The hosts return to Twickenham off the back of a resounding 46-15 victory over Italy in Rome, a bonus-point result that has put them top of the Six Nations table. But hot on their heels is Wales, who thrashed Scotland 34-7 in Cardiff and only trail England on points difference.

With Warren Gatland and Eddie Jones engaging in their usual verbal barbs this week – Gatland claiming that Wales have been and will be fitter than England before Jones questioned Rhys Patchell’s “bottle” and hit out at Alun Wyn Jones – the tension ahead of the game has built towards fever pitch, and the atmosphere inside the stadium is certain to rise as a result.

Wales haven’t beaten England since 2015, but that victory was the famous Rugby World Cup success over England that paved the way to their embarrassing elimination from their own tournament. However, they've suffered the loss of Leigh Halfpenny to a foot injury just an hour before kick-off, so Gareth Anscombe starts at full-back with Owen Watkin on the bench.
